Stem for Every Season Cloverbud Curriculum

These STEM lessons were designed for the everyday 4-H advisor or afterschool helper to feel confident in tackling a lesson in science.These lessons are meant to provide hands on, learning by doing, fun exploration into science. Each lesson contains an informational background about the science topic, step by step instructions for the experiment, and follow up questions to conclude the lesson.  We are proud to present this Cloverbud curriculum to 4-H advisors, teachers, day care staff, and other 4-H professionals.

Plans are underway to expand this curriculum with another twelve lessons focusing on STEM based career exploration experiments.
